What is Kitchari?

What is Kitchari?

So, what’s kitchari and what does it have to do with Ayurveda and, more importantly, you?

kitchari

Kitchari is a traditional Ayurvedic dish that’s known to assist in detoxing the body and balancing all three doshas: vata, pitta, and kapha. Kitchari provides awesome nutrients while cleansing the toxins out of the body. It’s a great way to cleanse the body and soul in a gentle way.

Kitchari is made with mung beans, Basmati rice, seasonal vegetables, ghee and spices. The mung beans are known for their ability to remove toxins, specifically pesticides and insecticides, from the body. Mung beans are also a great source of protein and provide a source of good carbohydrates and fiber. It’s also a great dish for those having digestive problems and recovering from illness. There’s many versions of Kitchari out there from simple to more elaborate.

Digestion = Agni

Digestion = Agni

Through the lens of Ayurveda we are what we “digest” not what we eat.

If we don’t digest our food we start to form “Ama”. Ama is a Sanskrit word, which literally means undigested or uncooked. The first stage of disease is also sometimes called Ama “toxins”.

Ayurveda also explains another entity called “Agni”. This word literally means fire. But in this context it means digestive fire. As long as the digestive fire is strong, Ama cannot be formed in the body. Agni (digestive fire) helps to melt down and flush out Ama (toxins) from the body.

Weak Agni (digestive fire) becomes weak by eating out of one’s constitution (Vata, Pitta or Kapha), eating the same foods, overeating, drinking too much water with meals, staying up late, resisting the urge to eat and eating at irregular times.

Presence of Ama (toxins)
Eczema
Psoriasis
Cysts
Swellings
Painful or swollen joints
Hypercholesterolemia
Blocked arteries

Symptoms of Ama in the body:
Heaviness
Lethargy
Irregular appetite or reduced appetite
Skin is dull and lusterless with blemishes, acne
Bloated stomach, gases, flatulence
Metallic taste in the mouth
White coating on the tongue
Foul smelling breath and sweat
Constipation, foul smelling stools which may be sticky, heavy and sink.
Lack of mental clarity and energy.
A sense of heaviness in the abdomen, legs or body as a whole
Weary and unenthusiastic feeling
Blocked feeling anywhere in the body, including constipation, sinus congestion and difficulty in breathing
Waking feeling tired even after a good nights sleep

Spring Allergies

Spring Allergies

 

Spring is upon us with it’s warmth, sunshine and pollen!

One way to get a jump on spring allergies…Nasya Oil.

The nose is the direct route to the brain and also the doorway to consciousness. It is the entrance for prana, the life force, which comes into the body through the breath. Healthy uncongested breathing is important to ensure proper flow of prana throughout the head and body. When an excess of bodily fluids accumulates in the sinus, throat, nose or head areas, it is best eliminated through the nose. Administration of herbally infused oil, or nasya, helps facilitate this cleansing process. Nasya Oil soothes and protects the nasal passage while nourishing the tissues.

Nasya is especially helpful on days that are cold, dry, or windy, or when the air is dusty or full of pollen. Great for air travel where recycled air drys out the sinus passages.

Daily nasal lubrication helps to:
• release tension in the head
• relieve accumulated stress
• improve quality of voice
• strengthen vision
• promote mental clarity

Classically, nasya oil is part of a daily routine for this very reason.
Adding this to your daily routine takes no more than a minute and is as simple as placing three to five drops of the oil in each nostril every morning. You will experience an immediate heightened sense of clarity and freshness.
